We attended the Money2020 Europe conference in Copenhagen a couple weeks ago. This was the first Money2020 conference outside of the epic assembly of payments geeks in Las Vegas, and it was a great first effort. People were universally pleased with the venue, a conference center near the airport, and there was ample opportunity to network. Unlike in Las Vegas, it was fairly easy to find people and have good conversations.
The crowd was friendly, and the vibe was easygoing and enthusiastic. And there was a lot to talk about for us payment geeks, as reliable sources told us that 40% of all fintech activity is related to payments. Here are a few of the topics and ideas that resonated with us at the show.
